Being an avid social networker and a magazine reader, I read many articles aiming to help people live more fulfilled lives. One particular contradicting matter that seems to crop up every now and then is the argument of living life saying ‘yes’ compared to a life without fear of saying ‘no.’

Numerous articles encourage people to be brave and bold and not let anything prevent them from experiences. But in contrast many articles also persuade readers to have the courage to say no to things.

So which is the best way to live? Or is it a combination of the two?

I for one cannot stand saying no. A mix of not wanting to disappoint and not wanting to miss out certainly affect my decision.

Arguments for saying no suggest you need to be able to take time for yourself and allow yourself to manage all the responsibilities you have.

Is saying yes bold or weak and is saying no rude or responsible?
